While I was perusing Toonzone earlier today I noticed a little tidbit that kinda flew under the radar with the investor conference call just prior to this year’s Toy Fair.
Apparently, in a discussion with investors about the future of The Hub and Hasbro’s entertainment properties, it was mentioned that “…second season of shows to be announced by the Hub in March”. So yes, we’ve already heard about Transformers: Prime (mostly because the CGI modeling requires significant more lead time in production) and now it sounds like next month we could hear good news (hopefully) about G.I. Joe: Renegades as well.
This is awesome news! I’ve been dying for a good way to watch HD renders of the G.I. Joe: Renegades cartoons, and now we’ve got it. Apple’s iTunes service has begun offering HD versions of the G.I. Joe: Renegades animated series through the iTunes store.
Currently they have every episode that has aired so far (and listed in their correct order at that!). The first episode is free for both SD and HD versions. I’m currently downloading the HD copy and will let everyone know how it turns out. If I like it, I’ll try and figure out if I want to spring $2.99 per episode going forward.
Not knowing whether a Blu-Ray release is coming or not, this might be a good fall back. Clicking this link will redirect you right there!
